Two Car is an original project from Silver Link to celebrate the company’s tenth anniversary. Masafumi Tamura (Ange Vierge) is directing the show at Silver Link, with Yuki Sawairi (Masamune-kun’s Revenge) providing character designs. Katsuhiko Takayama (Aldnoah.Zero, Sagrada Reset) is in charge of series composition and writing the scripts.

Other confirmed crew members include:

  • Original Concept: Nikoichi
  • Original Character Designer: Tiv
  • Music: Ryou Takahashi
  • Sound Director: Toshiki Kameyama
  • Music Production: Lantis

Two Car will focus on two young ladies who enter the world of motorcycle sidecar racing. Yuri Miyata and Megumi Meguro are natives of Miyake Island, a small, thinly-populated island that’s in the Tokyo Metropolitan Prefecture. At first blush, the two are polar opposites. Yuri is a girly, cool-headed girl whose family owns a guesthouse, while Megumi is the impulsive and glamorous daughter of inn owners. And yes, they butt heads at times, but when they hit the track, the two girls form an incredible team.

The two find themselves in a battle for supremacy on the track, against teams from across Japan. As one would expect, the girls’ opponents are made up of equally quirky pairs, such as an honor students and a slacker, a sadist and a masochist, and a manzai comedy duo.
Specific character descriptions include:

  • Yuri Miyata: Yuri is a girly, cool-headed girl whose family runs a guesthouse. Her slender build makes her an ideal driver, and she works both the accelerator and brake in a race.
  • Megumi Meguro: Megumi is a tomboyish, impulsive girl whose family runs an inn. Her heavier build makes her a stronger passenger, where her acrobatic abilities and weight help to handle cornering.

Silver Link released a promo video to promote the series on Tuesday. You can check it out below:
